It's the most beautiful church I've seen in my life. It's mostly the cornflower blue walls with golden roofs that made this impression (Instagram-worthy-pictures alert everyone!) The inside is filled with golden decorations. You can see it all for free, just remember to be respectful...More

One of my favorite cathedral in my native city. The temple was destroyed in Soviet period and re-established again. It's very beautiful place. Very nice views. Of course you must visit this Cathedral if you visit Kyiv.
